Following their conception in the mid twentieth century, the world of computers has evolved from a landscape of isolated entities into a sprawling web of interconnected machines. Yet, given this evolution, many of the methods we use for allowing computers to work together still reflect their inherently isolated origins with the aggregation of...

The Netherlands is often depicted as a battleground, with the Dutch in a constant struggle against the water that surrounds them. This project examines this tradition in the context of the Wadden Sea and the island of Schiermonnikoog, where this battle between the land and the sea is at its most extreme.

This project traces the myth of ...

The behaviour of square steel tube confined reinforced concrete columns after fire exposure was studied experimentally and numerically in this paper. Eighteen stub columns were first heated following the ISO 834 standard fire including both heating and cooling phases, and were subsequently loaded to failure after cooling to ambient temperature....

Environmental analysis should be performed early in the Research and Development (R&D) phases of new technologies to timely determine potential impact and, thereby, include prevention and minimization of unfavorable ecological impact into the innovation process. Here, we demonstrate the application of anticipatory Life Cycle Assessment ...

In epoxy-bitumen systems, temperature contributes to the development of physiochemical and mechanical characteristics during curing (chemical hardening) and at the long-term service (oxidative aging) of pavement structures. Hardening (i.e., chemical or oxidative controlled) is a complex phenomenon in epoxy-modified binders and the in-depth...

During the development for railway, ballasted track is dominant structure and makes up more than 95% of the whole track modes. However, its shortage is considerable in high speed railway and heavy haul system. Regarding to the ballasted railway track's defects as particle breakage, settlement, and geometry irregularity which lead to enormous...

Objectives – Over the past decades, more and more cardiac diseases have been treated in interventional cardiology. Catheters are generally used to access the heart through the blood vessels. The previously developed steerable Sigma catheter at Delft University of Technology, tackles cable related challenges of conventional mechanically...

Climate change is an inevitable fact and governments worldwide have started to recognize this by expanding the contribution of renewable energy sources to our global energy production. Wind energy is currently one of the most attractive solutions for the transition to a more sustainable energy future. Since wind energy is not the only competitor...

Mechanical metamaterials are a new emerging class of materials which achieve properties outside the bounds of conventional materials. A metamaterial consists of a unit cell which is periodically repeated in space. In this study, a new metamaterial unit cell is proposed, derived from a class of space structures known as deployable masts. What...

To evaluate traffic signal controllers, and vehicle-actuated traffic signal controllers in particular, in terms of how they are performing with respect to the road authority’s policies on traffic flow and accessibility, traffic safety, and environmental factors, several methods are developed in practice. However, in scientific literature, little...

Flotsam lines may arise on coastal dikes after a storm surge. These lines are generated when material due to debris accumulation on the foreshore has been transported onto the dike surface by wave run-up. Hydraulic engineers who used flotsam line measurements, interpreted a flotsam line as a line which is marking the highest wave run-up. In the...

Flow unsteadiness caused by impeller rotation, vortex-shedding, secondary flows etc. can lead to the generation of acoustic waves within the turbomachinery cascade. This causes pressure loading on the impeller. When acoustic resonance occurs, i.e. the frequency of acoustic wave excitation matches with the structural natural frequencies of the...

In this dissertation, we analyse the safe use of medical technology, considering the training of users, technical demands of used devices and instruments, and the surgical workflow. As each of these elements will vary depending on the experience of the user, the equipment used, and variations in the environment; a unique set of parameters for...

Majorana bound states (MBSs) are novel particles predicted to be created when superconductor/semiconductor hybrid structures with strong spin-orbit coupling are subjected to strong magnetic fields. Expected to exhibit non-Abelian exchange statistics, they could form the basis of a new kind of quantum computer that is inherently protected from...

Weather observation is becoming more important than ever because extreme weather, such as tropical cyclones, thunderstorms and heavy rain, is more common nowadays. To observe and forecast the atmospheric phenomena at high spatial and temporal resolution, weather radar is well recognized as an effective tool. The prerequisite of using weather...

Wetlands are among the most productive environments in the world. Around 6% of the Earth's land surface is covered by wetlands, which are key to preserving biodiversity. Wetlands provide multiple services like a source for water supply and a shelter for numerous species of fauna and flora. Wetlands are therefore of immense socio-economic as well...

The aim of Transmission Expansion Planning (TEP) studies is to decide which, where, and when new grid elements should be built in order to minimize the total system cost. The lumpiness of the investment decisions, together with the large size of the problem, make the problem very hard to solve. Consequently, methods should be put in place to...

Sailing against the wind follows a zig-zag trajectory. To find the optimal time and path-trajectory to move from one target to another during a race, this study analyzes how the wind determines the optimal time-path of Lasers, one of the smallest sailboats that compete during the summer Olympic Games.
To answer this question, this study uses...

This report is the result of the graduation project of Joris Menting for SWKGroep. The project concludes the master program Design for Interaction at the Delft University of Technology. SWKGroep asked for an innovative child care tool for children of 10-14 years old. The project description offered the designer much freedom. The initial design...
